Green Tagging

Hazardous Materials

Equipment and Labs

Before any lab equipment can be 

  • moved to another lab, or

  • disposed of, or

  • serviced,

it must be cleaned and disinfected by lab personnel, then inspected by EHS. This process must also be followed when a lab space is to be vacated. This ensures the equipment does not present an exposure hazard to new occupants, housekeeping staff, or maintenance personnel. 

Green tag requests will be processed within 2-4 business days following receipt by EHS.  A 24-48 hour service response can be arranged by making a note on the Green Tag Form​.

The sections below provide general guidance. The Cleaning Procedures for Laboratory Equipment include more detailed instructions on preparing labs and equipment for green tagging.
